I was reminded recently of a huge challenge continuing to brew in the background as we busy ourselves with the economic crisis - the retiring workforce.
Check out the lead in to this article, The Dark Side of the Retirement Bubble by Stephen Xavier over at Chief Learning Officer. (Unless noted, the other quotes are from the same article.)
I was reading an article over at Chief Learning Officer Magazine by Alan Fine called "A Mandate for Coaching." He has some interesting thoughts about what he calls "an inside-out approach" to managing employees. He says that this approach "is about tapping into the performance capacity already inside people." I've always been a fan of that type of management and I appreciated the brief refresher.
When you show people the ramifications of their decisions, they change their behavior.
Sometimes when universities are just starting down the lecture capture path, faculty members voice concerns that the technology will eventually replace them. We've never seen this happen. Mediasite is just the medium. You need the prof for the message.
We get asked a lot if lecture capture affects in-class attendance. The EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research released The ECAR Study of Undergraduate Students and Information Technology.
